Dolphin Gap Year!

Updated: Mar 18

Making the decision to take a gap year after school was a big step for me. It made me anxious and unsure of myself. I have always had a passion for the ocean, so I took a chance, threw myself into the deep end (literally) and decided to volunteer with Angie and the Dolphin Encountours Research Center in Ponta Do Ouro, Mozambique.


I will never forget my first dolphin experience, this is were I got to meet local #dolphinsofponta mums U-Nic and Trinity in the company of their little boys!


The three juvenile males


The fact that my face did not get permanently stuck into that huge smile of mine is a miracle. The encountour probably lasted around 10 minutes and I absorbed every second of it. With camera in hand and eye in the viewfinder, I could feel the energy the dolphins gave off and I hope to have been able to capture that in my images. At this point, I can’t imagine being anywhere else.


Whether I am reconstructing dolphin skeletons or staring at the ocean for hours to try find a pod passing by, I can’t wait to see what happens next! Hopefully I will be ready to capture it.
